Visa/Residency Requirements

France has instituted new visa requirements for students who study in France for longer than three months. These new requirements are effective June 1, 2009.

All students studying longer than 3 months in France will need to register with the local French Office of Immigration and Integration (OFII) upon their arrival in France. In order to comply with this requirement, the visa process has changed, and there are new procedures for students once they are in France.
Documents for Immigration Registration in France

Students will need to comply with the following process once in France:
  • Submit the OFII form which will have been issued by the Consulate together with the visa.
  • Undergo a medical exam in France that is organized by OFII.
  • Pay a 55 euro tax.
  • Provide a copy of your passport with the residence stamp received at the consulate and the immigration stamp received upon entering France at the French border.
  • Proof of accommodation (typically provided by the on-site program once the student is in France)
  • One photo ID picture
The Rouen Business School international office will organize everything for your students (collect the OFII form, take the medical appointments, sell the 55 euros stamp, give the explanation and support) but we have noticed that the Fall students were not informed of this procedure and this misunderstanding has complicated the whole procedure. Students cannot miss these medical appointments (given by the OFII during the business days) and many of them had to cancel some trips ... they have to stay in France until they get the medical appointments. A general message will be given before and after the arrivals but we kindly ask you to inform them when they apply.
